This Cranberry Pie is really more of a cake with a wonderful flavor that combines the tartness of cranberries with the smooth, buttery taste of cake.
With a handful of ingredients, any beginner cook could make it. But it’s festive color makes it pretty enough for a special dinner.
Cranberries are only in season in the early fall, so make this dessert for Thanksgiving or Christmastime!
Preheat oven to 325 degrees F. Grease a 9-inch pie plate.
In a food processor, pulse cranberries and nuts together until finely chopped and put in prepared pie plate. Sprinkle ¼ cup of sugar over cranberry-nut mixture.
In a bowl, beat eggs. Add remaining ¾ cup of sugar, flour, butter, and almond extract; mix well. Pour over cranberry-nut mixture. Bake for 40 to 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
